  1. Pressing keys D+E+A causes the keyboard to write Q


    I am using a Dell Inspiron 15 7570 and whenever I press the keys D, E and A at the same time or in quick succession, the keyboard cycles between writing q and writing a.

    Pressing '0' (zero) yields 'q', regardless of keyboard and layout


    It doesn't appear like my layout swaps the two keys:


    Pressing keys D+E+A causes the keyboard to write Q [​IMG]


    Pressing 'q' yields 'q'.

    And as I said, this happens regardless of which layout is used in Windows. My custom layout is called "atomic layout".

    When "Norwegian keyboard" is selected, it clearly writes using Norwegian layout, and not "atomic".

    PS: Using KeyCodes3.exe, this is the output I get when I press the 'q' and '0' keys, respectively (couldn't copy):

    Pressing keys D+E+A causes the keyboard to write Q

    Keyboard keys switched


    After the latest windows insider update some keys on my keyboard have changed. For example " is now @ and the opposite as well. Meaning if I want the @ key as in a email address, I must push the " key. I cant seem to find a way to reset to default. The normal keyboard default does nothing. The other changes are listed below, the errors are in bold red;


    ! " £ $ % ^ & * ( ) _ +

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 - =

    Q W E R T Y U I O P { } ~

    q w e r t y u i o p [ ] #

    A S D F G H J K L : @

    a s d f g h j k l ; '
